Artist's Description

Scrabo Tower, Newtownards, Co Down, N Ireland.

The landmark, which is visible from most of north Down, was built on a volcanic plug above the town in 1857 as a memorial to Charles Stewart, 3rd Marquess of Londonderry who was one of the Duke of Wellington’s generals during the Napoleonic Wars. The 3rd Marquis, or “Warring Charlie” as he was also known, inherited the title and family seat of Mount Stewart after his brother, the 2nd Marquis, committed suicide. The 2nd Marquis is better known as Viscount Castlereagh who served a term as Britain’s Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
